Tiwi Women gaining vital knowledge
This month the amazing ladies from Wurrumiyanga CDP Womens activity were featured in a Charles Darwin Article ” Students going ‘bananas’ over horticultural this August.
Over the past 10 months the Wurrumiyanga women have been traveling into Darwin to complete their Certificate II in Horticulture. This has been a huge achievement for the ladies and the Tiwi Community.
“This dedicated group of women have been challenged, excited, exhausted and rewarded by starting and completing a program which culturally may be seen as a men’s program ” – Robyn Wing, CDU Lecturer
The women have been busy at their own centre in Wurrumiyanga as they prepare their own veggie patch . The centre has newly purchased new garden equipment and they are all looking forward to using the skills they learnt throughout the course to beautify the Wurrumiyanga Women’s Centre.
Throughout the course Charles Darwin University VET Lecturer Robyn Wing has been with the ladies from the commencement, and has built a strong connection to the 5 ladies. she is so proud of them.
In December the ladies will be graduating with CDU graduates. TITEB is very proud of the ladies involved and looks forward to them sharing their knowledge and new skills with the other Tiwi Women.
Congratulations ladies on your outstanding achievement
